I recently visited my older daughter and her husband; they live on Long Island, NY. On two different days we went into the city and did some touristy things. On the second of these days, it was just my daughter and me as my SIL had to work. We went to the Museum of Arts and Design to view the Radical Lace and Subversive Knitting exhibit which opened in January.
I highly recommend this, even if you have no major interest in lace or knitting - it's not really about either in the usual sense. To give you an idea, one type of "lace" was made by creating holes in attactive patterns in parts of an old car. Check out their web site - www.madmuseum.org .
If you go, please feel free to come back here and comment on your impressions.
Peace to all,
